EPSRP and RTA Reports for IDN ccTLD Applications
The latest version of the Final Implementation Plan for the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process (FIP) includes the Extended Process Similarity Review Panel (EPSRP) as the second review based on the Guidelines for the Extended Process Similarity Review Panel. The updated FIP also includes the step for Risk Treatment Appraisal (RTA) of the mitigation measures proposed by the applicant after the string similarity review process based on the Guideline for Risk Mitigation Measures Evaluation.
The EPSRP and RTA reports for IDN ccTLD applicants who have requested for these reviews are published below.

The IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process was launched on 16 November 2009. As of that date, eligible countries and territories were able to request their respective IDN ccTLD(s) through the process.
Following extensive public consultations, the ccNSO Council adopted in April 2013 [PDF, 118 KB] the Final Report on the IDN ccNSO PDP [PDF, 376 KB]. This work has taken into account the experiences and reviews of the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process as well as the Governmental Advisory Committee's advice on the matter. On 27 June 2013, the ICANN Board approved an update to FIP to implement a two-panel process for string similarity review in the IDN ccTLD Fast Track Process, and was proposed following the conclusion of the IDN Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) Policy Development Process (PDP).
On 29 October 2017, the ICANN Board approved another update to FIP to incorporate changes proposed by the Joint ccNSO SSAC Response. The updated FIP adds a step to evaluate mitigation measures proposed by the applicant, if the string similarity review provides a split decision for uppercase and lower case forms of the string.
